9780198246244: An Essay on Free Will

"This is an important book, and no one interested in issues which touch on the free will will want to ignore it."--Ethics. In this stimulating and thought-provoking book, the author defends the thesis that free will is incompatible with determinism. He disputes the view that determinism is necessary for moral responsbility. Finding no good reason for accepting determinism, but believing moral responsiblity to be indubitable, he concludes that determinism should be rejected.

About the Author:

Peter Van Inwagen is at Syracuse University.

Review:


"This is an important book, and no one interested in issues which touch on the free will will want to ignore it."--Ethics


"An extremely intelligent, resourceful, and rigorous book. It is filled with subtle, sophisticated, imaginative, and often ingenious argumentation. Van Inwagen systematically systematically puts his finger on the operative intuitions of incompatibilism, and he presents incompatibilism as forcefully as has ever been done."--The Philosophical Review
